    Best thread sealant?

    Just curious what everyone is using as a thread sealant? Every year I have to reseal my polaris booster pump connection. I use teflon tape + megaloc. I know the manual recommends "silicone sealant" but they don't actually specify what type. What do YOU use?

    I use teflon paste thread sealant. You can use it on almost any type of pipe.

    I've used silicone sealant on a few things and as long as it's 100% silicone it's fine.
